Joseph Cundall:

102) A Brief History of Wood-Engraving, from its Invention.

London 1895

This book provides a concise survey on the development of the medium and on the various English engraving schools. It predominantly follows the tracks of Chatto and Jackson’s Treatise and Linton’s Masters, calling the latter “the modern prince of wood-engravers.” It was published in the year of its author’s death, the noted publisher, photographer and book designer Joseph Cundall.
